Extremely high quality paper adds to the already stunning graphic designs that cleverly depict the thoughtful literary excerpts for each month. Love, love, love my calendar! Can't wait until the year ends so that I can not only get next year's calendar, but frame EACH month's calendar from this year!

About

THINK AGAIN.

Obvious State is a New York City-based design studio co-founded by Evan and Nichole Robertson. We’re word lovers who make art for word lovers. We’re inspired by provocative language and literature, and use our favorite passages as a springboard for original designs.

All of our products are meticulously crafted in the United States and printed on the finest papers and materials. After all, beautiful language deserves beautiful treatment.

In the age of clickbait, infotainment and overstimulation, slow thought has become a luxury. We hope our work inspires people to savor words and revisit big books and big ideas.

Our work has been featured by Elle Magazine, Book Riot, The Paris Review, The New York Times, L.A. Times, InStyle Magazine, Martha Stewart, Real Simple, Huff Post Arts + Culture, Apartment Therapy, Trend Hunter, Daily Candy, HGTV, BuzzFeed, My Modern Met and HBO.
